Bosco Verticale towers designed by Boeri Studio were in the news in 2014 with the world going gaga over them. So much so, that the unique architecture project went on to win many awards and was also lauded by gaffers in the architecture world.
Why is the years old project back in news again? One of the condos in Bosco Verticale tower is now available for rent on Airbnb. Boasting the natural greenery outside, the elegant flat has one bedroom and sleeps a couple of people. The room is filled with Italian furniture and is equipped with daily amenities. The room has Wi-Fi, air conditioning as well as access to an on-site gym.
For those who don’t know, the Bosco Verticale is more famously known as ‘vertical forest’. Based in Milan, Italy the environment-friendly towers contain as many trees as you can fit into a hectare of forest providing clean air to the residents of the skyscraper and a habitat for local wildlife. Hat tip to ArchDaily that notes, Bosco Verticale is home to 480 large and medium trees, 300 small trees, 11,000 perennial and covering plants and 5,000 shrubs.
If you want to spend a night in the Bosco Verticale flat, you might have to book it years in advance. The Airbnb rental is all booked for now and you might have to wait until 2025 to actually rent the room for yourself. A night at the vertical garden skyscraper in Milan would cost you about $250 (£184) per night.
